Course Objectives The objective of this course is to introduce the engineering students to the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics and momentum transfer. The emphasis is on the basics of fluid static and fluid motion, with applications generally selected from food processing. It is the intent of this course to show how the basic laws of fluid mechanics (fluid static; conservation of mass, energy and momentum) can be applied in an organized and systematic manner to the solution of practical (food) engineering problems. Ultimately, the student should acquire the knowledge and skill required to find solutions to practical fluid flow problems.
